Profile

Professor Jun Li serves as Chair of the Academic and Research Cluster of Critical Policy, Equity and Leadership Studies, a Senator of Western Univeristy, and Vice President (and President Designate) of Comparative and International Education Society (CIES). He started his academic career in Shanghai in the early 1990s and served as Deputy Director of the Education Policy Unit at the University of Hong Kong before he moved back to Canada in 2017. With two PhDs - one in Educational History (ECNU, 1992) and another in International Education Policy (UMCP, 2006), he has rich leadership and other professional experiences accumulated in a global context (Shanghai, Tokyo, Maryland, Toronto, Hong Kong, etc.). Having led as Chairman for the Hong Kong Educational Research Association (2014-17), President for the Comparative Education Society of Hong Kong (2012-14) and an Advisory Programming Committee member of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada (2019-20), he currently works as a founding editor of the CIES Book Series Education in Global Perspective (SUNY, US), a regional editor of Bloomsbury Education and Childhood Studies (Bloomsbury, UK) and an associate founding editor of Beijing International Review of Education (Brill, the Netherlands), in addition to his advisory role or editorship in various international journals/book series, such as Comparative Education Review (Chicago, US).

Prof. Li is a renowned expert in the studies of education and East Asia, advocating the establishment of Educational Improvement Studies (EIS) on policy and leadership in comparative and international education, higher education, teacher education, citizenship education and civil society, etc. He has extensively published, with many academic books and over a hundred of journal/newspaper articles or book chapters in English, Chinese or Japanese, including his authored book Quest for World-Class Teacher Education? A Multiperspectival Study on the Chinese Model of Policy Implementation (Springer, 2016), co-authored book Portraits of 21st Century Chinese Universities: In the Move to Mass Higher Education (Springer/CERC, 2011) and co-edited books International Status Anxiety and Higher Education: Soviet Legacy in China and Russia (Springer/CERC, 2018) and Measuring up in Higher Education: How University Rankings and League Tables are Re-shaping Knowledge Production in the Global Era (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021). He is often invited for keynote speeches around the globe, as well as interviewed on education and/or East Asia by The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Global Times, China Daily, South China Morning Post, China Central Television (CCTV), and China Global Television Network (CGTN), etc.

Prof. Li believes in a philosophy that humans are born close to one another but diverge through learning (The Analects of Confucius, 17.2). His “happy hour” is usually in the morning or evening with a pot of tea to discuss or write anything exploratory, creative, or even inconceivable. As a dedicated educator, researcher and father, he is always more than happy to share with you his learning about education.
